With one simple press of a button or Touchscreen*, scans can be quickly and easily shared across teams and departments; improving workflow efficiency and increasing productivity.


*Touchscreen on ADS-2800W and ADS-3600W models only.

Colour Touchscreen

Using the colour touchscreen, scanned documents can be sent instantly to pre-selected destinations for quick and simple scanning, saving time and staff training. Routine scan jobs can be pre-configured more quickly and with fewer steps, improving workflow efficiency.

Direct scanning to favourite locations such as a departmental folders, email recipients or OCR software means routine tasks can be performed quickly and simply. This reduces the need for staff training and speeds up everyday workflow.

Near-Field Communication (NFC)

NFC enables close proximity wireless communication between your Brother scanner and an NFC device.

This NFC capability automatically establishes a direct connection, allowing instant scanning without having to connect to a Network, for simple and timely workflow in and around the office to keep your business moving.

Give customers, visitors or colleagues quick temporary access to a Brother scanner without the need to obtain passwords or enter login credentials, which can be time consuming and complicated.

Secure Function Lock (SFL)


SFL is a security function which can disable or enable configuration settings and allow user restrictions to be put in place. It also has a public mode which allows functions to be left unrestricted. SFL allows administrators to restrict scanner settings per user, allowing for function management and improved security.

Scan to USB Host

The scan to USB Host feature allows the connection of an external storage flash drive up to 64 GB.

Multifeed Detection

This system uses sound waves to identify potential misfeeds. The paper pathway is automatically suspended and the user alerted if an irregular signal is detected, reducing the risk of damaged documents and lost data.


Advanced Reverse Roller System

This advanced system manages incoming bulk paper jobs so only one sheet is processed at a time, for outstanding reliability when scanning a variety of document types and weights.

Advanced Image Processing Features


The built-in range of powerful scanning tools intuitively prepare and clean scanned files, improving the quality of the scanned image for storing, editing, sharing and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) needs.


This reduces file sizes for sharing and generates clearly legible articles when reading. This means less time spent manually preparing and correcting documents and more time spent focusing on the core of your business.
